It should not cause any problems. We work hard to make sure that there is
forward- and backward-compatibility along a major release line.

Judging from your error message, it looks like data in your repository had
become corrupt (or at least some of its contents did). Most of the time,
I've seen this boil down to two things: a BDB repository was on a network
share, or a non-recommended version of BDB was being used. The server
knows what the checksum should be because we store that along with the
actual file (for verification purposes). As we send the data, we also
verify that the checksum is the same, and unfortunately, they weren't in
your case.

I don't know which version of BDB comes with Debian Sid, but I would check
that it's at least a known good version (4.0.14, 4.2.52, 4.3.x).
